Quoted from glpinball:

Funny story - so I rebuilt the flippers including replacing 3 of the 4 coils since they were very old and at least one had a stuck coil sleeve. First time doing this and soldering on a pinball game so that was interesting. But it worked in the end! Flippers are now amazing and I have hope I can actually hit some scores I see people getting on the game online. Before the flippers were so weak you had to use momentum to hit the bear ramp. But, as I was testing the flippers the ball would barely get out of the shooter lane at a full plunge. What the heck!!! Flippers have nothing to do with ball plunge! I'm looking at it, even removed the gate to eliminate that as being the problem. Checked the plunger, wondering if somehow its misaligned and hitting something as it goes in. Finally, go to set up a video and realize I can see metal on the plunger tip! Turns out at the exact same time I rebuilt the flippers, the tip of the rubber plunger cover broke off during my testing. Replaced it with an old one I had laying around and problem solved! Don't you love unrelated problems that come up during a fix?

Man, I’m getting my butt kicked on unrelated problems with my LOTR right now. Or, probably related I just can’t see how. The game I got the solonoid for the flipper had the wrong screws that you could tel the previous owner jammed in there and wasn’t holding the coil right. So all I did was replace the screws, but I must have bumped something because the next game the flipper was energizing up randomly, later locked on and blew the fuse, and now won’t flip at all even after going through it underneath to be sure the switches didn’t get bent. Now I’m tracing things back to the board ... and I’m not skilled with this level of diagnosis. Why did I have change the screws?!?

Quoted from fiberdude120:

I put a clear ramp on mine and my ramp is not like yours. If I remember I got mine from Starship

Thanks, got it all sorted out a new replacement ramp is on its way.

hey taffers, I'm trying to diagnose a Slam Tilt error here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/slam-tilt-and-game-reboots-on-taf-with-both-flipper-activated/page/2#post-6083671

Any help much appreciated!

One lug of the flipper coil may be touching something and getting grounded after you worked on it. (or one of the wires going to the coil lug is loose)

Thanks everyone for the advise and help so far.
I have received a new opto board from Marcos. Has anyone ever received a bad set of boards?
I have swapped them out exactly as they were on the originals, and its not reading any of them.
I've looked for a wiring diagram online and I cannot find anything and the manual isn't very helpful.

Here is what I have
Top Board (LED)
GRD - BLK
Grey/Orange
Grey/ Yellow
Grey/ Green
Grey/ Red

Lower Board (IR)
Orange/ Black
Orange/ Yellow
Orange/ Green
Orange/ Red?
Grey/ Yellow

Any Help is appreciated.
I'm going to move onto the replacing the targets in the mean time.
I have included a few pics for reference.
Pay no attention to my crappy solder job

It looks like your pads are bridged for the LEDs.

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the artwork for the side art of the Bally/Hand/Ball. Looking to printing it out on my retroarcade.

Anyone have a part number for a cabinet flipper switch complete with screws? (The part that is mounted IN the cabinet, that the button presses against..)

Thanks.

This is the switch, but I'm not sure of the screws.

#4162 30 days ago

AH! Thank you, thank you. Screws, I could find replacements. The important thing are the switches.

Been toying with it as mine has its share of mileage

Has anyone bought one on here

Thanks

The last cabinet I got from them was a TAF. No pics but you will not be disappointed.

Paul makes them as close to original as you can get. No issues whatsoever and great quality!

I have to second this!

Paul makes a beautiful cabinet!

I just put one on my Funhouse resto and its perfect, way better than the original cabinet.

Just beautiful workmanship.

Plus I like the way you can order a bare cabinet or have them do it all for you as a "turn key" solution.

#4166 27 days ago

Had my lifetime game tonight - 580M with 2 Mansion Tours. Do I need to sell the game as I will likely never get close to that score ever again? Just had all 4 flippers replaced - bet that helped.

Thank you both

i will reach out

#4168 26 days ago

Will also add I had Paul do two for my own personal games. A CV and an IJ WMS. The CV I had mostly all done by him with decals, etc. The IJ was all bare. Both were awesome and after having him do the CV ready to go on the outside, that is the way I'll go in the future. He does an excellent job with the cabinet and with the finishing work too.

I know this is a stupid question, but how do I remove the flasher housing from the wireform? I'm replacing it with one that's freshly plated.

Drill out the rivets, re-rivet it.

He wants to remove it from the metal rail.

#4177 26 days ago

No the rivet answer was correct. I just want to remove the plastic housing. I will need to order a crimp tool to reinstall it. Thx

Does the bare cab come assembled or just as sides, front, floor, etc that need put together? What does shipping run?

Did anyone hear they're doing an Adams Family reboot with Tim Burton and Johnnie Depp as Gomez?

Let the speculation begin on an all-new Adams Family pinball.

Supposedly it will be on Netflix.

So there's going to be TWO Gomez's? This should be interesting..!

Hey TAF owners ... I've been having a ton of fun making these new products, so here's one for you:

There are plain old original stock coin reject buttons ... then there are aftermarket coin reject buttons with flat 2-D patterns -- I'm taking it to the next dimension with these new 3-D Coin Reject Buttons!

Addams_1_RCP (resized).jpg

These eye-catching buttons literally pop out at you! They're 3D-printed with multiple filaments, including a translucent red which allows the coin insert light to glow through. For TAF, they feature Uncle Fester's chair -- modeled with gaps in the slats and legs to allow more red light to glow through.

game off

game on (buttons lit)

Available on my website (https://rocketcitypinball.com) or in my shop here on Pinside (https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1282-rocket-city-pinball/04821-3d-coin-reject-buttons-addams-family). (My daughter gets a commission too; these 3D buttons were her idea!)

Note: please check your game before ordering -- this button replaces P/N 27-1037 button & 27-1038 cover. I've seen a few pics of some TAF games with a different type of button, so compare to my pictures to be sure this is the correct one for yours (button is separate piece from slot).

Looks Awesome!!
Any chance of one with thing on it?
maybe pointing to the coin slot?

Thanks! Trying it with Thing was my first idea but I was concerned the fingers might end up too skinny and/or protrude in a way that could risk them getting broken. I also considered a polar bear head, but decided to go with the chair. I might revisit other variations later down the road, but for now I'm going with the chair.

I have a question. The mansion light board under the playfiels has diodes on the bottom of the board. I removed the bad diode but i want to make sure that a 1n4004 diode is a correct replacement. Looking through manualy i could not find a part number or listing. The diode removed has a qte listed on the diode but im not sure what this stands for. Thanks

Yes - you can use anything from a 1N4001 to 1N4006 if you wanted. All good.

I am looking to get the fuse kit for the power magnets to prevent playfield burn. Is there a difference between the kit from Marco and the kit from Pinball Life? Seems to be a 10 dollar difference in price.

Get the Addams Family Fused High Power Magnet Board from here instead

I think it looks much cleaner than having inline fuses hanging on the bottom of your playfield...(not that just about everything is hanging from there), but you get my point...

#4194 8 days ago

A brand new high quality board with the fuses already in place. I think so.

I have it and it's been rock solid.

Hi there! I'm a big fan of Addams Family and since I've been making custom 3D printed and hand painted keychains for different pins I just had to make one for AF. I thought I would share it with all of you. If you want one for your game let me know!

When I got my TAF I installed the in line fuses. I had them neatly in place and cable tied. But when I later saw the board I jumped on it. So I have both in my game.
